Bucket Brigades are a fun community event that rescues unused buckets, plants them up with veggies and seeds, pairs them with resources and information on care and harvesting, and gives them to the people!

The idea behind the Bucket Brigade is that long-time and brand new gardeners will be able to fend for themselves a bit food-wise, learn about food gardening, and keep these buckets planted year round. To top it all off, many of the buckets we use can not be recycled in Seattle so we make a small dent in the landfill.
